The feather'd race with pinions skim the air

SO I'm looking at that pic of Bush looking at his portrait, and I'm trying to come up with a witty caption, and I notice that his fingers are weirdly intertwined:


And it took me about a day's incubation to Remember the Pueblo:


And, mind you, I'm not saying George W. Bush is flipping off the National Portrait Gallery or anything.  I'm just sayin' that if we had a President capable of that sort of thing, he'd be it.

You sure about that? Because if they hang that at the usual height, most folks who view that on the wall are going to be staring directly at the man's crotch.

Unusual pose, isn't it?

Flipping us off, AND thumbing his nose, as he skips merrily off to an enriched retirement. The apex predator...

The twistedness of his fingers suggests his outward placid demeanor is a lie, and he's uncomfortably aware that the moment The Portrait is unveiled is the moment when the judgment of history really begins.

Nah. I'm too filled with hope.

Besides, I can't believe George Bush would lie.

He's not flipping off the portrait gallery, he's just continuing to flip off the 'Murcan People.

You know Julia, hanging it at prime crotch-viewing level will allow the nation to remember Bush at his high point: landing on the Mission Accomplished ship with his manly package out there for the Rightly media sycophants to get all excited about. The American people may soon come to see that day as the media low point, but I am probably being optimistic; I'm sure they've got lower points in store for us.

Those men on the Pueblo were saying that the situation was FUBAR and they were being mistreated.

Is Bush telling us that he is misunderstood, needs rescuing, that the situation is FUBAR or is he just hopelessly uncoordinated so he can't even control is own hands.

Which reminds me of Burt Lancaster in "That Sweet Smell of Success" who said, "My left hand hasn't seen my right hand in thirty years."
